The Warwick Castle is a lovely locals haunt set in the heart of Little Venice, welcoming visitors and neighbours to the area since 1848. Although updated the changes have been faithful to the original decor and charm of the building.

We pride ourselves on our genuine friendliness and warmth. There is something for each customer to enjoy, whether it is a chilled glass of delicious wine enjoyed at our outside tables in the lovely mews of Warwick Place on a sunny afternoon or stopping for a pint and slice of homemade sausage rolls in front of our open log fires on a winters evening, we welcome you all.

Lovely, traditional pub, with welcoming staff. A few minutes walk from Little Venice down a quiet road. Substantial, well-cooked, tasty Sunday roast. Tasty house bitter and decent range of wines.

Best pub in London, easily. Amazing little pub tucked away in Little Venice, behind the Clifton Nursery Gardens. Outdoor seating is beautiful in the summer and spring. Good selection of draught beers, with both local and premium import world lagers like Asahi Super Dry and Peroni Nastro Azzurro. Big fan of the bbq chicken wings. Staff are always friendly and patrons are kind. Highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to have a pint (or 5).

The staff were lovely and generally professional, and the pub itself is lovely with a good atmosphere. The food is poor though, starters were fine but mains and dessert not so much. I didn’t eat my roast as it just tasted off and pudding looked like a pathetic small sponge that was in the freezer for a year too long, and I was never asked by the staff what the problem was which was disappointing given the price. Would come back for drinks but not for food.

Revisited this local pub for Sunday Lunch after quite a few years. Delighted to find a warm atmosphere and a very decent selection of beers and other drinks. I opted for the traditional roast beef lunch which was very decent but let down by the slightly over cooked beef and a rather thin gravy, both of which I was happy to overlook as everything else was cooked well. Lovely sweet and firm carrots, a generous serving of grilled hispi cabbage and crispy roast potatoes accompanied by a horse radish cream.
I guess everyone has their own idea of a perfect 'Sunday Roast' so it would be impossible to please all of the people all of the time, so although this meal was not perfect (in my head), I will be back to try other items on the menu in this gem of a pub.

A real shame as we love this pub and have been many times but it was not good. I think poor service can be put down to just 2 floor staff which is not enough in a busy pub, perhaps they had staffing issues due to illness/isolation...

What can't be excused is the food, £15 for what was described as a short rib burger with American cheddar - I knew it wasn't going to be good when I saw the processed cheese slice peeking out of the side!! The chips were cold and we had to send them back but by the time they arrived we had eaten the very average burgers. All in all very disappointing.

Service was excellent and food well presented. Very good Haddock and Chips, but a little fatty with over fried batter. Outside lunchtime ambiance affected by deliveries and cigarette smoking drivers. Avoid delivery date and its well worth a visit.

We all had roasts and they weren't very good. Everything was weirdly both undercooked and overcooked in that the potatoes were mushy and pale and the chicken was dry and also with pale, squishy skin and the beef was tough and the pork belly was very squishy with the fat not rendered or crispy. The yorkies were burnt and the carrots were undercooked. Overall, terrible food at very high prices. The drinks were good and so was the service, but weirdly there was fairly loud American country music playing, which was often dreary as country music is wont to be, so it was strange on Father's Day. Wouldn't go back.

We used The Warwick Castle for a light lunch before a walk along the Regents Canal. Everything was great except for the leek and potato soup which I’m afraid wasn’t very nice at all. That said we’d absolutely use the pub again.

Not the pub's fault - but unfortunately there were lots of loud lads in the pub when we went and it made for an annoying experience. Also we were seated next to the gent's loos - lol - not ideal but not the pub's fault for being quite busy. Still good staff & drinks. :)

It is a nice pub with a warm atmosphere and a good service. If you are here for a pint, then go ahead.
The food on the other hand isn't good at all,-the only decent dish was the fish and chips- portions are ridiculously tiny and it is extremely overpriced for what you get.
It is a shame really as we absolutely loved it as people around and staff were so friendly and it felt great.

Thank you for your review, lovely words about the staff and atmosphere, so sorry to hear about your food experience, i agree the portions can be a little less generous on some dishes, which we don't unfortunatly get to decide on, although we have since then had a change of menu.

Sunday lunch - very limited food. Two roasts already gone so decided on a steak - also gone! Badly trained staff (not THEIR fault.).
We left after ten minutes and will not go back.

Hi Jo, Very sorry to hear this, sometimes we are much more busier than expected at midday and roasts are only available until they are gone, nevertheless i agree it is important to have enough servings on a sunday and we have since listened to your review and increased our quantity, we also had new staff at the time which are fully settled now and equipped to deal with much more, if you do decide to visit I'm sure it will be a totally different experience!

Popped in as I had heard good things about the pub, made to feel very welcome on arrival, felt safe in terms of the Covid precautions, staff very friendly.
Wife ordered cod and chips and my daughter and I went for the burger and fries.
Drinks wise, a very good choice, the wife had a g&t while I had an Asahi dry lager.
Service was excellent and staff are fun and friendly.
Food was better than expected and the wife’s cod and chips were quite probably the best I have ever tried . The burger and fries were also excellent.
Overall, very worth a visit and the pub has been frequented by many celebrities over the years, it’s also a grade 2 listed building
